We recently visited Newport and stayed in this beautifully restored Edwarian hotel. As this is a grade 2 listed building, many of its original features have been retained, not least of which is the wonderful original bar area. Our bedroom was spacious with a king sized bed and sitting area. The bathroom was modern and towels were large and fluffy.... More

Great food, fantastic hotel, lovely staff...stayed only for one night, but we will be back :). Rooms are specious, very comfortable bed... We were reading comments on tripadvisor before we booked and the area looks a bit scruffy, but inside it was nice and cosy. Room was facing the busy road but not as much as some of the comments...

Though we only stayed for 1 night, but it was a nice experience. We stayed in a 3 beds room which is pretty rare to find, the room was clean with an ensuite bathroom. It is still retaining its original design amongst the more modern style buildings around it. The hosts were very friendly, we chatted with them during breakfast.... More

So happy to have chanced upon The Waterloo Hotel & Bistro in Newport, South Wales. What a blessed relief from the generic budget hotels we've endured on previous trips to attend family occasions in South Wales. This Grade 1 listed, Edwardian pub located beside Newport's Alexandra Dock maintains many of its original features, sympathetically enhanced by the owners impressive collection... More

Lovely and unique hotel and bistro. Welcoming people in a lovely building. On the main road but lots to see! Wonderful food and spotless room. The bar area is a true treasure and all renovations are well done. It's not the ritz but it's not supposed to be.

Amazing Victorian architecture inside and out. Lovely well priced food, great service. Just lacked linen napkins. Car park hard to find and a tight archway so don't bother - plenty of street parking. Not to be missed. 6 out of 5 !

This hotel ticked lots of boxes for me. The room was large, light and airy, king size bed really comfortable. Loved the fireplace feature in our room. Our evening meal was excellent. Breakfast was cooked to order. Again good food. Above all Bob and his team are extremely welcoming. We were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble... More

We went here for a Sunday meal as it had good reviews and its close to where we were staying. I was a bit put off from the exterior as the area looked a bit run down but the inside was moderately better. They have this weird system of taking your food order before you are seated at your table.... More
